OBJECTIVE To describe the correlation between the skeletal changes induced by maxillary protraction treatment and the sagittal airway dimension associated with tongue, soft palate, and hyoid bone position in skeletal Class III children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty Class III patients (5 boys, 15 girls; mean age, 9.4 ± 1.8 years) treated with a maxillary protraction appliance were included in this study. Pretreatment and posttreatment cephalometric radiographs were analyzed; linear and angular… CONTINUE READING
